When MedTec InterLinx opened for business in 2007, telehealth and telemedicine were still very exotic terms not used extensively among healthcare providers and organizations in New York State. However, the need for access to affordable, quality specialty care services was writ large across the vast swaths of rural communities surrounding the urban centers of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton and Albany with an abundance of premier healthcare facilities and clinical centers of excellence.
Since its inception, MedTec InterLinx has worked with urban and rural healthcare organizations to assess, plan and implement their vision to partner deliver quality affordable clinical services in medically under-served communities. In 2007, we partnered with a Rural-Area Health Education Center (R-AHEC) to secure $6M through FCC's Rural Healthcare Broadband Program to fund subsidized broadband services to a consortium of 40+ rural and urban healthcare providers and organizations across 16 counties of western and central NYS. From 2008-present, we have successfully partnered with rural healthcare organizations to secure upwards of $3M in grant funding from the USDA Distance Learning & Telemedicine Program, the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Rural Telehealth Network Program, and the NYS Department of Health's HEAL and Health Provider Innovation Programs.
Once the grant funding is secured to get telehealth projects started, we work closely with our clients to develop the core foundation to build the specific telehealth and clinical education programs to serve their rural communities, which are sustainable beyond the scope and size of the seed funding from grants. Typically this involves development of technology assessments, designing clinical telemedicine workflows and policies and procedures for day-to-day management of the program, setting up the business analysis and financial reporting models, and crafting the technical and clinical telehealth training modules.
From conception to assessment to planning to implementation, MedTec InterLinx is always there as a partner to help our clients in whichever role and capacity possible.
